Student Life

  • A port city set in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull has the buzz of a place fresh from being the UK City of Culture in 2017, with the added advantage of having amazing countryside right on the doorstep. Its maritime past means this has always been a place where people gather to trade, mingle, and relax – and that's just as true today. In the cobbled old town you'll find comfy pubs, quirky shops, great nightclubs, eclectic cafés, a vibrant student quarter and the cosmopolitan waterfront.

Nightlife and Culture

  • Hull was named the UK City of Culture 2017, a title it holds until 2021 and which gave new vibrancy to the city's many galleries, venues, and public spaces – including the new 3,500-capacity Bonus Arena concert venue.
  • Hull's lively social scene includes numerous pubs, bars and restaurants. The burgeoning marina and fruit market area, along with Newland Avenue and Prince's Avenue, have seen a huge expansion of continental-style bars and cafés. Clubbers find no shortage of options, from Asylum on the university campus and the ever popular Welly and Adelphi alternative music clubs, to more mainstream options in the city centre.
  • Visitors flock to the city for the annual Freedom Festival and Humber Street Sesh; Hull also boasts annual festivals for film, comedy, jazz, photography, science and literature.
  • Hull Fair, one of Europe’s oldest and largest travelling fun fairs, takes place in early October each year, centred on the Walton Street outdoor market.


  • Hull has good transport links to Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, and London, as well as the rest of the UK.
  • Cycling is a popular way to get around Hull. There are lockable bike sheds on the university campus and at student residences.
  • A good bus service runs in and around the city. A bus stop is located on Cottingham Road, just outside the main entrance to the university, with a 10-minute bus ride to the city centre.
  • The city-centre railway station is approximately 10 minutes' drive from the University of Hull campus.
  • The city is easily accessible by car, via the A63, and M62.
